"I hope you see things that startle you"


“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.” —Eric Roth, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

And me? I'm learning how to let things unfold in their own time in the lives of my children. Not the easiest of lessons for me, but necessary.

  7. Courage. Trust. Patience. Tenacity. Spontaneity. It's all in that one paragraph. Thank you, Angella. It wants to live on my fridge, I think. As to the learning we are (t)asked to do with/without/alongside and independent from our beloved children. . . it seems to me to be a lifelong process and amongst the most challenging and blessedly rewarding of things. Love to you and yours, Claire (what magnificent blossoms! It's snowing over here in NZ.) x
